Changing Your Gmail Name on Android

Are you tired of seeing your old Gmail name every time you send an email from your Android device? Changing your Gmail name is a simple process that can be done in just a few steps. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of changing your Gmail name on Android.

Step 1: Open the Gmail App

The first step is to open the Gmail app on your Android device. Locate the app icon on your home screen or in the app drawer and tap on it to launch the app.

Step 2: Access the Settings Menu

Once you have opened the Gmail app, tap on the hamburger menu icon in the top left corner of the screen. This will open a side menu with various options. Scroll down and find “Settings”, then tap on it to access the settings menu.

Step 3: Select Your Account

In the settings menu, you will see a list of accounts associated with your device. Tap on the account for which you want to change the name.


  • If you have multiple accounts linked to your device, make sure to select the correct one.
  • If you want to change the name for all your accounts, repeat this process for each account.

Step 4: Edit Your Name

Once you have selected your account, scroll down until you find “Your Name” or “Name”. Tap on it to edit your current name.

A text box will appear where you can enter your new desired name. Type in your new name using either uppercase or lowercase letters.

Note: Keep in mind that changing your name here will also change how it appears across all Google services associated with your account, not just Gmail.

Step 5: Save Your Changes

After entering your new name, tap on the “Save” or “Done” button to save your changes. Your Gmail app will automatically update with your new name.

Congratulations! You have successfully changed your Gmail name on Android. From now on, whenever you send an email from this account using the Gmail app on your Android device, it will display your new name.
